Facelift for an ‘The Fernhurst Centre’
The Fernhurst Centre is currently closed but autumn will bring the unveiling of a freshly painted and fully modernised Fernhurst Centre. From the beginning of October, we are looking forward to showing off the larger café area and renovated kitchen as well as all sorts of little decorative features and new lighting. There’s still plenty of room for the computers and all our courses will continue as before but we think you’ll like the new comfortable seating and delicious variety of ‘bean to cup’ coffees, assorted teas and tasty nibbles on offer at special prices.
Come in and see the ‘New Look’ for yourself. Make the most of our Grand Opening Café Offers by dropping in to meet a friend, read the papers or find out what’s going on in Fernhurst.
We’re glad to be back, come and see us soon.
